Bradbury Mountain Hawkwatch: Week 2

Ha! And we thought the weather was bad last week! A winter storm warning, rain and fog kept our count hours at a low this week. Our only day of note was 3/27 with a count of 66 raptors on a light northerly breeze and temperatures in the 40s. Red Crossbills and Pine Siskins have been flying over, and also spending some time in the trees at the summit which has been fun. 3 Tree Swallows were moving north on 3/27 – hopefully they are doing okay. The upcoming week looks to be unsettled as well with more rain and possibly wet snow on the way. We will be up there when we can.
